Default Another Bar Build

I began this project last fall, progress has been a bit slower than I would have liked, but I am getting much closer. This is a free standing structure in my back yard. It has hot and cold running water, sewer connection, electricity and natural gas. It is heated and air conditioned.

Current amenities include;

Built in bathroom
Portable dishwasher
Keezer with refrigeration and freezer compartments
Natural gas fireplace

Very nice, did you have to get any permits for it?

Thanks, and as for permits, not required where I live. I have done all of the work myself, however was assisted/supervised on the water, sewer & natural gas line by a buddy who is licensed and had all the tools.

That is some serious dedication to drinking. My hats off to you. Square footage of your bar?

That is a good question, and I must admit I am not completely sure. I poured the concrete and installed the sewer lines about 3 years ago, in that 3 years I accumulated building materials whenever I found a good deal and stored them. Also I have intentionally "lost" several receipts to prevent swmbo (and myself now) from knowing the true cost.

The windows I already had and are actually triple pane commercial freezer doors (there were 31 of them left in the Morton building when we bought the place).

Best guess would currently be in the $4000 - $4500 price range that includes the materials & construction costs of the keezer. I still have to buy a few odds and ends, however I should be done with major expenses.

256sq feet. (16 x 16)

This project kind of snowballed, originally this was going to be a screened in "summer kitchen" with a natural gas bbq pit where the fireplace ended up. The only enclosed space was going to be the bathroom with the water lines drained in the winter.

If I had known it was going to turn into this, when pouring concrete, I would have made it larger maybe 20 x 30. Then I could have added a pool table.
